Using a Contraband Detector to Find Hidden Items

A contraband detector is one of the essential tools law enforcement depend on to help them detect and locate hidden contraband in a quick and non-destructive way.

Most contraband detectors today are portable and easy to use. But what sets the Buster K910G density meter apart from other contraband detectors is its superior detecting capabilities. Plus, it does other useful functions, not to mention that it is the safest contraband detection tool on the market.

The Buster K910G is the product of Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO), designed and developed by company founder Patrick J. Campbell, with direct input from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

The features of the Buster are the reason of its success of doing its basic job as a contraband detector: it uses a low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector that enables it to scan vehicles, furniture and voided spaces. It is designed to allow the user (the inspector or officer) to determine whether an object or area is suspect of carrying hidden contraband in just a matter of minutes.

The great thing about the Buster density meter is that it does examinations and inspections for hidden contraband without the need to dismantle the suspect object or area. This is a far cry to the inspections where officers would spend hours in detecting a suspect object, which would often involve disassembling parts of vehicles or tearing down walls, for instance.

Unlike other detecting tools that use millimeter wave, radio wave, ultraviolet wave or microwave technologies, the Buster density meter can identify concealed items through a variety of materials: wood, stone, metal or reinforced plastics. Again, it does that without the need to dismantle the suspect object or area – unless it positively confirms that something is hidden behind that object.

The Buster K910G density meter features both visual and audible readouts to alert inspectors to the presence of contraband, and can quickly and accurately zero in on the specific location of where the contraband is hidden – narcotics, illegal substances, cash, jewelry, weapons, and explosives, among many other items.

Other functions and features of the Buster K910G

The Buster K910G density meter also has the RAD-Aware, a radiation detection feature that allows the first responders (inspectors) to establish safe parameters for other people in case of a radioactive leak such as dirty-bomb detonation.

The Buster K910G itself is perfectly safe to use and is also environmentally friendly. Its radioactive source is now 25% smaller than any other density meter and all its lead-based components have been removed, making the Buster the safest density meter on the market!

The testament of the Buster's unmatched performance? It is responsible for the seizure of billions of dollars' worth of narcotics and cash and numerous arrests of the perpetrators. No wonder the Buster is hailed as the “gold standard” of contraband detection.
